Press Image – Arsenal Ready to Agree $83million Record Breaking Signing

Wenger Arsene Arsenal FCManchester United and Chelsea have been interested in Belgian international and Everton star Romelu Lukaku for quite some time. Now, even Arsenal are serious about signing him.
The North Londoners have badly missed a proven quality striker since the departure of Robin van Persie and reports suggest that they are ready to splash the cash and hire the services of the former Chelsea center forward.
According to Sunday Mirror (Press image provided below), Arsenal are ready to splash a fee of 65 million pounds ($83million) to secure the signature of Lukaku, who is currently the leading goalscorer in the Premier League this season.
The above mentioned fee would break Arsenal’s club record transfer. They paid 42.4million pounds to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013 (BBC).
The 23-year-old star is one of the best out and out center forwards around and has so far netted 24 golas in 33 league games for the Toffees in the current campaign.
The British source claim that the future of Alexis Sanchez makes no difference in Arsenal’s pursuit of Romelu. They are even ready to offer Everton cash in advance to persuade the Merseyside club to do business with them.
Lukaku deserves to play in the Champions League but at the moment, it looks highly unlikely that Arsenal will be taking part in Europe’s top tournament next season. The ex Anderlecht striker rejected a new Everton deal and it will be intriguing to see where he ends up in the summer transfer window.

    Arsen wenger should not think of buy any striker outside England. Lukaku is a good player to buy if arsenal have the money but if not they should go and buy stoke city number 9 (Arnatrovich). He is strong, fast and tall. He had shown quality of scoring goals if he play with Creative midfielder like ozil and Co.

    The reporter is just trying to sell the news to the public and boosts sales.
    I doubt Wenger will spend that sort of money considering his future is still
    Imho,soccer is a team game and everybody must play his part in the build up
    to score and win.Its dangerous to rely 90% on one guy to score.
    Its better the scoring is spread out so that teams cannot stifle certain players.
    When Wright was on fire ,Arsenal used to win.When he was marked tightly Arsenal
    were in effective.For younger fans there a certain Ron Davies/Davis with Saints.
    He was scoring goals with his head. When teams got on to this
    he was ineffective.

    Lukaku will be at Everton next season. Ronald Koeman has shown he is willing to force players to stay in the face of big money offers at Southampton and Lukau has two years left on his deal. The soonest they would consider selling him is in January if the price is huge or next summer, when the price will still be huge. Everton have more need to the player than the cash, so expect him to stay.
    Arsenal would be willing to pay, this Arsene Wenger is not as constructed by transfer costs, but the waghes Lukaku might deamnd could be an issue.
